The Waynesville Craft Beer Faire is a FAMILY EVENT. State approved ID’s ARE REQUIRED FOR BEER. Event is RAIN OR SHINE. No pets are allowed.
1993 saw the birth of craft beer in Waynesville North Carolina. Smoky Mountain Brewery opened in Waynesville one year prior to Highlands Brewery opening in Asheville. The small craft brewery remained open for just four years.
Since then, Western North Carolina has exploded with thriving craft breweries including 4 in Waynesville alone. The Waynesville Craft Beer Faire celebrates the rapid growth of beer culture in Waynesville and all of WNC.
Enter The American Legion Post 47 of Waynesville…In its inaugural year, the Legion “stepped to the plate” offering to host the brewer event on their ball field, taking advantage of the beautiful Smoky Mountains as a backdrop and the proximity to all the amenities Downtown Waynesville has to offer. The first year was a great success with over 30 craft beers, home-brewers and a near sell-out crowd.
The Faire features great local music, fine foods, home-brew and educational displays. Informative classes are presented by area craft and home brew experts.
Within walking distance to Historic Downtown Waynesville, attendees to the Waynesville Craft Beer Faire enjoy first-class restaurants, cafes, shops and creations by the area’s talented chefs and Appalachian artisans.
